B'Tselem on Monday lashed out against Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman's attack on left-wing groups, saying that Lieberman's latest comments "will not deter us."

In an official statement, the group said: "Lieberman and his cronies are the ones that cause enormous damage to the state and its international standing, and also attempt to silence human rights organizations working courageously to save Israeli democracy and our moral image."Earlier Monday, Lieberman defended his party's recent initiative to establish a parliamentary committee of inquiry to probe the funding sources of left-wing organizations.

Lieberman said that "these organizations help terrorists, and their main aim is to weaken the IDF and its ability to protect the citizens of the State of Israel."
